Vitamin Injections (B12 & C)

Why an injection?

Vitamin B12 and C can be found in animal based foods, fortified foods such as cereals and through oral vitamin supplements. However, the digestive system isn't always efficient in absorbing the compound, meaning a large amount can simply pass straight through unabsorbed. Taking certain medicines regularly can cause this, just as having certain bowel complaints can too. 

If we deliver the medicine directly into the deltoid muscle at the top of the arm we dramatically increase the usable amount available to the cells in our body; this is the benefit of the intramuscular injection route. One injection may provide several weeks and months worth of benefit without the need to take a daily vitamin B12 tablet or C tablets, however this varies amongst people in different circumstances.

How much do we need?

The recognised 'normal' level of B12 in the UK (140pG/ml) is considerably lower than the 'normal' levels accepted in other developed countries such as America, Canada and Japan. In these countries levels of 200-950pG/ml are considered normal and known to be safe. It's therefore quite common.
